I read the sad news last night on a couple of Facebook groups that John Foust, aka Honest John of Honest John's Caddy Corner has passed away. As a fellow parts seller I had talked to him way back and immediately connected with him as a very down to earth likeable guy that had Cadillac in his blood and someone that I would meet several times at Grand National and someone I considered my friend. He was one of those guys that you could sit down with after the GN events and just chat with for hours, or someone when they called you eagerly took their call to hear his friendly voice. We would sometimes call each other looking for parts for our customers, but always ended up in these lengthy conversations. It appeared that John was like that with EVERYBODY! He was just the salt of the earth easy going guy that loved being part of the Cadillac Community and will be greatly missed.
For those that did not know John or some of his many endeavors, here is a copy of his write-up when he won the Cadillac & LaSalle Club 2019 International Activity Award:
Sounds like a very big loss to the World of Cadillacs when a man of this caliber and knowledge passes away
It cannot be to long into the future that those who experienced our year Cadillacs when new and the world as it was then are no longer available to be consulted as there advanced age will be eliminating them one at a time
Mr John Foust — R.I. P. ! — and thank you for your life of Cadillac passion and the help you have given this community in your time
